Anyone familiar with this type of spider. Found dangling from my bedroom ceiling on a long spiderweb string. No visible spiderweb. This is a room used often however we had a pretty good down pour of a storm earlier in the day. This is different than the normal house spiders I see here. Thank you for any feedback....

This is the smaller of two spiders of the same species that make webs outside my window each night. They clean up each morning and rebuild the next night. The other spider is about 3x this size and has a much larger abdomen but looks the same. This picture also shows what both webs look like. The webs are separate but next to each other....
